Use Active Directory Security Groups for Openfire Administration


I am wondering if there is any way to use AD security groups to administer Openfire v3.9.3 instead of adding individual user accounts as administrators?


What about a generic user account in an AD security group? Or just making admins a member of that security group and adjusting your LDAP connection string in Openfire to suit where that group is located in your schema?

As far as I’m aware you can’t specify a group for admins instead of specific users.


The LDAP connection can see the groups and adding the group to admin.AuthorizedJIDS* *does not allow log ins.

As you said does not seem to be possible.
